Calling all local and regional artists! Be a part of activating Algoma Alley in Downtown Oshkosh! We’re excited to invite YOU to participate in this community project!
The Downtown Oshkosh Business Improvement District & Oshkosh Art Collective is seeking artist proposals for:
The project site is located along the alley on Algoma Blvd between North Main Street and Division by the 400 W N Main Street Public Parking Lot. This alley was selected based on public ownership of the alley, support of the surrounding business + property owners and the general need for improved public spaces throughout Downtown Oshkosh.
This project is a continuation of the City of Oshkosh’s Imagine Oshkosh plan which encourages the expansion of arts and culture in the Central City area. The plan states:
“Public art can create a greater sense of community, enhance and showcase the City of Oshkosh, and reinforce the Center City as a community focal point and social, cultural, entertainment center. In addition, public art can attract visitors to the Center City, generating economic activity. By promoting public art, the City can better position the Center City to become a stronger and more vibrant center for art and culture.”
The project will consist of public art installations, lighting, seating and other property improvements. We can’t wait to share more about the project soon. Call to Artists coming in early June! Check back for more details.
